Draft in Louisville at Sergio’s. When you get a chance to drink a retired black IPA from Estonia you don’t say no. Dark pour, huge thick rocky khaki head. Roast, somewhat astringent, mustard. Muted. Moderately bitter, dry. Lasting harsh finish. Overall: wooooo Estonia!

Zwart bier met mooie schuimkraag. Smaak is bitter hoppig, rokig en licht fruitig met iets van bittere chocolade en rode bessen.

nihtila (3517) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 10, 2017
Bottle at Craigs. Dark brown. Nose is chocolate, roast, sweet, pine. Tastes a lot blander than nose, only faint of pine and fruits, some chocolate. To be honest, this bottle was quite old.

BitchPls (803) - FINLAND - FEB 8, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2017 Cola black beer with a small dark beige head. Roastiness and mild fruitiness in the aroma...Probably with blueberries? Quite nice bitterness and a bit strange flavor from the blueberries again? Roasted and bitter with blueberries... weird but quite alright. Salty liquorice also. I?m not sure if I really like it but it?s worth tasting for, for sure! It?s quite well made and balanced actually.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2016 [email protected] this a year after expiration date, still tastes fantastic. Its no longer got any ipa flavors, but the dark beer with forest berries is in there, its strong and tastes nice. If you?re sitting on a batch or you have a chance to try one, you?re in luck because this is really good.
